At a loss for how to beautify this New Year's Eve? Check out our must-have beauty essentials and you'll be polished in no time!

Blotting papers

You know the saying "Women don't sweat, they glisten?" Well, women do sweat, especially when we're in a room crowded with other New Year's revelers! Keep your skin's natural glow and even tone with a mini pack of blotting papers. We love the Tea Tree Oil ones from The Body Shop to help remove oil and sweat from our face without messing up our makeup.

It's hard to find a long-lasting mascara that won't bleed or drip under your lids, but we've recently fallen hard for a mascara that does just that! To prevent any mascara meltdowns this New Year's Eve, try L'Oréal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara.

Odds are you're going to be out all night long this New Year's Eve, so you're going to need makeup that lasts. To make sure your eye makeup lasts the whole night long, try out a primer. We love Bare Escentuals' Prime Time Eyelid Primer!
